Wednesday Friendsday – Radar

Happy Wednesday Friensday everyone – meet Radar!

Radar is not your ordinary dog for so many reasons! He helps his owner, Ali, out with her homework:

Radar licks the leftover milk from Ali’s cereal in the morning:

He loves the water (and even has his own pair of doggles!):

And Radar can even open the front door all by himself! I’ll bet the UPS man loves that 🙂

When Ali unfortunately had to be in the hospital for a week, she had this green blanket with her. Radar missed her so much that when she brought it back home it became his favorite blanket – he carries it around everywhere with him!

Thank you Ali for sharing these wonderful photos of Radar with us! He looks like an incredible dog – and what an adorable puppy he was!! (and still is!)

Love Your Pet Day

Just heard that today is “Love Your Pet Day” – isn’t every day that? 🙂

Maybe today you can do just a little extra pampering for your pet.. An extra 5 minutes of belly scratching? Homemade dog biscuits? A trip to their favorite park?

Or even better, maybe today you can show your love for the pets that still have yet to find their forever home by donating to the ASPCA , your local Humane Society or Golden Rescue organization.

We’d love for everyone to share their favorite pics of them and their loved pet on our facebook fan page! We’ll include them in tomorrow’s Post-Love Your Pet Day blog post. Here’s one of our facebook fans, Jane, and her two beautiful Goldens that she rescued!

Valentines with your K9s

Happy <belated> Valentine’s Day everyone! I hope you all had fun celebrating with your sweethearts (dogs included of course).

Came across this adorable video on You Tube that melted my heart – very fitting for a day all about ‘showing the love’ to the special ones in your life.. and nothing says that more than a belly rub!

Here’s a sneak peek at next week’s Wednesday Friendsday.. can’t wait to share more fun photos of this pup with you!


Wednesday Friendsday – Jackson

Happy Wednesday Friendsday Golden lovers – meet Jackson!! Isn’t he one of the cutest puppies you have EVER seen?

Jackson lives in sunny Phoenix, AZ with his parents Adam & Liz. Jackson’s favorite thing to do is cool off with a nice swim in the pool..

..or a swim in the lake! Jackson even has his own life jacket so he can swim all day long without getting too tired.

And if there’s not a pool or a lake around, a bucket will do 🙂

Jackson’s favorite toy is his tennis ball, he will fetch it all day long if you throw it. His favorite treat is a bone dipped in peanut butter (mmm.. sounds yummy Jackson!).

“He is the sweetest, most loving dog we have ever had – and truly brings so much happiness to our home,” says Adam. From the looks of that floppy tongue smile, the feeling is definitely mutual Adam 🙂 Aren’t these photos amazing? Adam and Liz are engaged – and included Jackson in their recent engagement photos! What a beautiful family!! Photography was done by Kelsey Pinkerton.

Thank you Adam & Liz for sharing your photos with us! Congratulations on your upcoming wedding – wishing you a lifetime of love, laughter, and puppy dog kisses 🙂  – Jackson’s a lucky pup to have such wonderful parents!


Super Golden Moments of the Superbowl!

Happy Superbowl everyone! Who are you rooting for today?

I love that even though dogs aren’t the ones scoring the touchdowns – they are still so involved with the big game! Whether it be on the commercials or half time shows of their own, the Superbowl and dogs go together like Bud Lite and chicken wings! 🙂 Here are some of our favorite “Super Golden” Superbowl highlights:

If you didn’t see Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’s “Puppy Predictor” – you’ve got to watch this video! A darling little golden retriever puppy sits in the guest seat – do you agree with his prediction?

We love Animal Planet’s “Puppy Bowl” Here’s a sneak peak at Puppy Bowl VIII

It’s no surprise that the best Superbowl commercials involve dogs. Here are some of our favorites!


Have a fun day watching the big game everyone! Goodness, all this talk about goldens and football makes me want to watch this movie!

Wednesday Friendsday

Hello fellow Golden lovers – and Happy Wednesday Friendsday! Our first Wednesday Friendsday of 2012!!

We have a very special pup today – meet Napa Bella! Today also happens to be Napa’s 6th Birthday – HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAPA!!

Napa’s mommy is Arizona’s favorite news anchor – Tram Mai! Tram Mai is the host of EVB Live on Arizona’s Channel 12 News. For viewers outside of Arizona, you may recognize her from her guest host appearance on Live! With Regis & Kelly.  Quincey, Roxy and I love watching her show everyday! Not only is Tram a great mom to her goldens, but she is also extremely generous and supportive to our local animal (and human!:) community – helping organizations like Gabriel’s Angels.

I love the name Napa! Tram named her pup that after her love for wine. Wine + Goldens.. doesn’t get much better than that! Here’s some more adorable photos of Napa.

On top of having great parents, Napa also has a Golden sibling named Pressley! We’ll look forward to featuring Pressley in an upcoming Wednesday Friendsday 🙂

Tram, thank you for sharing photos of Napa – she’s a beautiful pup! We hope you have a fun time celebrating her birthday!
